Rare is the day when

After years of devouring books

Many times, when young, with a torch,

Blankets over my head

Until the battery failed –

New words, or even just one, are added to my vocabulary.

Came a blogger new to me,

Tasted, drawn by, my comments to another blogger friend,

Introducing her young grandsons as ‘rambunctious’.

Oh what a word to savour!

Uncontrollably exuberant, wildly boisterous,

Such am I today – rambunctious
